Could be a few things. I would check the transfer roller first it is the roller that sits under the toner cart. This roll should be spring loaded. Press down on each end, it should move down and come back up. If someone removed this roll the springs may be missing or out of place.
Let me know if this helps

My laserjet mfp 100 color is printing faint page what is the problem?


Two possible answers immediately come to mind. You may be in economy mode which uses far less toner but often produces "washed" out looking pages. Also you may be out of toner or need to "shake" the toner cartridges. On my Samsung laser printer if I do not print for a week then I need to shake the toner cartridge gently to loosed the toner.

Hi,
It is most likely be due to dust accumulation at the laser reflecting mirrors inside the printers, which partially blocks laser beams and results in faint print. (Strip with missing or less toner). Therefore the printer requires cleaning/ servicing by a professional. If you are familiar with the process of printer repair etc, you an do it yourself. Please visit the following link and download the repair manual for ready reference.

HP Laserjet 2840 asked for drum replacment afther only 5300 pages but should make 20000. Prits where still perfect but now it refuses to print. Any solutions how to keep using the drum?


Check online for refill instructions and where to buy the chip to replace on the drum, most of the drums today have little chips to replace that tell the printer when they are used up, even when there's still life in them.

It appears that the printer does not provide heat to produce a clean copy. New cartridge - paper ok - paper is spotted with character impressions - has been cleaned!

Very faint copies


You need developer added to your machine. When it is added properly to the toner, your copy quality will improve.
